I can help a bit on the toiletries. I stayed at POFQ last October, it was right after they switched all the toiletries. I wasn't happy. I have long hair and a shampoo/conditioner combo makes my hair really ratty. I'm really excited that CSR still has separate shampoo & conditioner. It's still the same kind of product, I believe H2O, so it's good product, just separate instead of combined.

If it's changed, trust me, you'll hear it from me in about 15 days

I have something to add. Hubby and I enjoyed CSR during the Christmas Season. It was absolutely beautiful at this resort during that time.

Hi Kat,
Just wanted to say you did a great job on this new FAQ thread . There is a chance my DH and I might stay here for 10th Anniversary in December for a few nights without the kids . I love the new rooms they look very deluxe and Queen beds is a plus too. Also have heard they have good bus service here The only thing is it will be when pop warner is there and that worries me a bit. We can't do deluxe since it's and extra trip and no way to a value since pop will be in those too. It's our Anniversary so a moderate it is. We like CBR since that is the only mod we stayed in but don't think a nemo room will be good for a stay without kids. So we are down to CSR or POFQ. I'm not a huge fan of the PM (ate there in October) but for a short trip well probably only go there for a quick breakfast. Love the new thread.

Thank you so much...I really appreciate it. We've never stayed with Pop Warner at Disney, however, we have traveled with youth football when our son played (in the Bill George league and the Pop Warner league). I truly do believe that it is not the kids so much as it is the lack of "chaperone supervision". All I can tell you about the CSR is that I've been told they are keeping "ALL" of the Pop Warner kids/families in the Ranchos section of the resort. I don't know if this helps or not. I think POFQ would be ideal for an anniversary trip as well. We've not stayed, but it is the moderate we would choose if CSR was not available.

Thanks for the info. We would ask for Cabana's or castita's then. If they really put all of pop in Rancho's it should be fine as far as noise. I agree lack of supervision is a problem. I have read the horror stories about this particular group. I'm sure some of the kid/school groups are fine though. We would check in late December 3rd and check out on the 6th. I looked at pics of POFQ but it really doesn't do anything for me, especially the rooms. Thanks again .

I think you'd be fine then. They'll only be there one day of your visit. And if there were a problem, I'd be on the horn to management immediately. I'm still shocked with the total rehab that they are even having them there. Let me know what you decide...and Happy Anniversary early!

A toothbrush is the long, white rectangular thing. This picture was taken in a Club room. When we had a suite, we did get the toothbrush. We also got shower gel and sun gel. I think taht might just be in the suites an the club rooms.

Adjoining rooms

Hi, I'll be traveling next June with DH, ds5, dd7, and DHs parents. We stayed at SSR a few years ago in a 2br villa, but since CSR has queens, I've suggested we stay there, and get adjoining rooms. Will that be difficult to swing, or do most rooms have that as an option already? If I can't be fairly sure, I think MIL will just want to go to SSR again.

Thanks for the info you all are sharing, it's been very helpful!

I am really loving all these CSR pics! It's BEAUTIFUL!

I vaguely remember reading on the DIS at some point that CSR had different coffee - not Nescafe. I think it was an Italian blend of some sort...

Is that true?

Oh, please say it's true...pleaaaaaaaaaaaaase.
